"Visit to A&E"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

I went to A&E late on Friday evening with a suspected broken ankle. I thought that I was in for a long wait with it being the weekend but I was very wrong. The whole experience was amazing. The reception staff were very efficient and friendly. I didn't have to wait long to see the triage nurse who was very professional and compassionate. I was informed that the wait for an X-ray was nearly 2 hours but I was called through 10 minutes later and seen by a dr within 20 minutes after the X-ray. From arriving at A&E to phoning a taxi home I was only there for an hour and a half. The staff I encountered made a bad experience easier and I was very impressed.
